Alexithymia in patients with haemophilia. Comparative study with the healthy population



Introduction. Haemophilia is “a genetic transmitted disorder”, it belongs to the category of rare diseases, illnesses that face devastating and incapacitating developments affecting each person beyond physical problems.
Material and method. 200 subjects were part of the study, they were divided into two equal groups (patients with hemophilia A and B – 50% and healthy population – 50%), aged between 16 and 45 years. We used the medical history and measuring alexithymia with TAS-20 (Toronto Alexithymia Scale).
Results. The study conducted shows that there are statistically significant differences between hemophiliacs and non-hemophiliacs, hemophiliacs have higher levels of alexithymia compared to non-hemophiliacs.
Conclusions. The overall level of alexithymia was higher in patients with haemophilia than the other groups, including three subscales DIF (difficulty identifying emotions), DDF (difficulty in describing feelings) and EOT (externally oriented thinking).

Keywords: alexithymia, haemophilia
